Hydrogen peroxide or H2O2 is the only germicidal agent composed of water and oxygen only. This chemical compound kills disease organisms through oxidation. This chemical compound is also considered as the world’s safest, all natural sanitizer. Hydrogen peroxide will break down into oxygen and water when it reacts with organic matter.

Bird Mites Infections

According to some reports hydrogen peroxide effectively kills the mites under the skin of people who are infected by tiny mites. If you are infected by bird mites, spray hydrogen peroxide to your skin for a few times (with several minutes in between each applications) and you will have an amazing result.

Make a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water. Spray the mixture in your foot every night and let it dry.

    We use hydrogen peroxide for cleaning all wounds and I find that healing often does not really start until I use it. I use it as concentrated as possible but not repeatedly. Once is usually sufficient; a second time a few days later if there is some inflammation. Using it too often can prevent the healing from taking place.
